Since the last Mega Millions jackpot winner more than three months ago, the prize has increased.
Without a winner for 25 consecutive draws, the Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to an estimated $1.35 billion and is still rising.
It must imply something for tonight's game that it is Friday the thirteenth, right?
Tuesday night was the 25th straight Mega run without a big winner because nobody won the jackpot.
The odds aren't terrific, and the prize is presently the second-largest in the game's history (1 in 302.6 million of hitting all six numbers).
According to Mega Millions, the only Mega jackpot higher than the one won on Friday is the $1.53 billion prize won in South Carolina in 2018.
Friday night is your next opportunity to win the Mega. The drawing takes place at 11 p.m. ET, and sales of tickets end 15 minutes before that time.
Therefore, avoid being one of the dejected individuals standing in line at the bodega at 10:46 p.m. and missing out.
